    Know of any *really good* high resolution fonts or a font tuning tool?


    I've finally got my video hardware straight. The screen is very high res and in default config everything is tiny. I've been playing with all of the preinstalled Kubuntu fonts, the DPI and the scaling. I can get it set up to where I can see everything with no problem.

    But it just looks crappy. The defaut fonts just aren't designed for this application.

    Doze has the same problem and they solve it two ways: 1) High res fonts. 2) Font tuning tools.

    Anybody know of similar stuff for *nix?

    I've done some Googles and came up empty and there's nothing like that in the KUB version of KDE.

    If you like MS's TrueType fonts, you can install them in Linux:

    http://corefonts.sourceforge.net

    I personally like the Bitstream Vera TT fonts for Linux. They are provided in the repos for many distros already.

    Cool, thanks. I'll try them out when I get home.
